Soft pastel - My medium of choice for many years. The effect of atmosphere and light achieved with pastel is wonderful. The Napa Valley remains my key inspiration but many paintings are based on photographs from my travels and on occasion, some pieces are from photos taken by friends, and, of course, clients.

  1. THE ART OF STEVEN GORDON • Napa Valley artist Steven Gordon works out of his studio in the town of Napa creating contemporary landscapes - oil paintings, pastel paintings and fine arts limited edition giclee prints based on the California landscape scenes of wine country as well as from the inspiration he receives during his travels. The awesome beauty of Napa Valley wine country is the primary muse for Steven Gordon's ephemeral artwork but more often than not is a stepping off point for the more contemplative contemporary landscape realism which he creates. Although realistic, the extensive consideration of the abstract elements of design, composition, color and form are an important part of the artist's thought process for creating his oil and pastel paintings, drawings and sketches. For 16 years Steven owned and operated The Gordon Gallery in Yountville, CA in the heart of the Napa Valley vineyards in the premier wine growing region of California. The gallery exhibited the artist's soft chalk pastels, oil pastels, watercolors, oil paintings, drawings, and giclee prints. The combined fine arts gallery and studio space allowed visitors to view works in progress and discuss the art with the artist. Steven has exhibited his work in many galleries across the country. His contemporary landscape pastel paintings and drawings are displayed in many Napa and Sonoma wineries as well as in numerous corporate and private collections across the country. If your travels bring you to Napa Valley, please contact Steven for a visit to his studio in the Old Town part of Napa. The studio is located in the downtown just a few blocks from all of the excellent fine dining, wine tasting and shopping activities in Napa town.
